Tsunami 145 - compare 2017 to 2015/16

-- Last Updated: Oct-27-16 8:14 PM EST --

I am looking at getting a Tsunami 145 for my first Kayak. I am a larger guy at 6'2"/270 with a 42"-44" waist. I have used a 145 in my basic and intermediate lessons and am ready to purchase.

The Tsunami 145 cockpit fits me great!

I understand that the 2015 and 2016 are essentially the same model, but there may be some differences in the 2017 model.

My question is this: does anyone know the differences between the current 2017 Tsunami 145 model vs. the earlier 2015/2016 models? The specs appear to be the same.

Thank you for your time and advice.

Why not call and ask?

Might not be any difference at all, other than delivery in 2017. Or maybe a different seat pad.

I think the manufacturer is your best bet.

Colors and footpegs

The footpegs will be changed to the Keepers XL pegs (larger surface area than the old style).

Sonar is a new color option. Lime and Galaxy are discontinued (in the Tsunami, at least).

That's pretty much it.
